Dax Harwood Defends Ex-WWE Star’s Recent Controversial Comments

Dax Harwood

Dax Harwood has leapt to the defence of WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart who recently explained in detail his problems with modern wrestling.

Bret Hart recently generated headlines when he explained his general disgust with current wrestling in both AEW and WWE, calling some stars “pathetic.”

Speaking on his FTR podcast, Dax Harwood defended Hart’s comments and thinks there’s a lot to what The Hitman had to say:

“So I think that, you know, there’s probably, you know, there’s, there’s gonna be a tonne of people that agree with him. I’m obviously one of them. But then a lot of people would think, Oh, he’s an old man yelling at the clouds, or, you know, he’s lost touch. Or he’s, you know, he’s just like, he hasn’t evolved with the time, right?

“He doesn’t mean when he says that. He doesn’t mean he wants the fans to believe for 20 minutes of the match. He doesn’t mean, I expect the fans to believe when someone has made a headlock, and I shoot them off, and they bounce off the ropes and give me attack on the ropes and bounce off. There’s a lot, he doesn’t expect for them to believe, all 20 minutes.

“But just like I told you earlier, he’s talking about these fans getting lost for one second, or for, you know, a few seconds each moment in the match. That’s what he’s talking about, to believe in the individual, to believe in the match. Not believe that every single thing is real, not believe that every flying head scissor is real, or every drop kick is real, to get lost in the action, to get lost in the match, get lost in the storytelling. That’s the real part.”
